The record-high reduction is the convergence of four immigration pathways targeted by the Trump administration: a complete shutdown of the Diversity Visa program; a 92 percent decrease in visas administered on the basis family-sponsored preferences; a 67 percent decrease in granting asylum; a 53 percent decrease in naturalizing immediate relatives of Americans; and a 71 percent decrease in extending citizenship to refugees.
Overall, the National Foundation for American Policy (NFAP) July 2020 study “projects that legal immigration will fall by 49% between FY 2016 and FY 2021 due to Trump administration policies,” a drop from 1,183,505 to 601,660.

It is amazing the power big corporations have to keep foreign labor coming in. Even with the Trump Administration doing its best to cut the amount of immigration coming in there is still a 60% increase in work-based immigration.
